Roguebook Test Report

word-image-8875 I had the chance to dive into Roguebook earlier this year for a preview, and while the selection was limited, I knew right away that the team at Abrakam Entertainment had found that special roguelike formula common to the biggest games in the genre. While I thought Darkest Dungeon was the pinnacle of the genre, I was blown away by Slay the Spire. Hades once again did his best and blew everyone away. Roguebook wastes no time in establishing itself as one of the best games in the genre. Roguebook is a game that wears its inspiration on its sleeve. Fans of Slay the Spire will immediately recognize the general battle plan and map design, and fans of the roguelike genre will quickly pick up on the general features and mechanics of the game. That’s not to say, however, that Roguebook doesn’t bring its own artistic flair, and it’s the presentation of that artistic creativity that really sets it apart from the competition. The graphics are stunning, from the isometric style environments filled with color and detail, to the charming characters and quirky creatures. Roguebook brings something fresh and exciting to the table by incorporating art and style into the structure of the game. Each page of the book acts as a level; there are three environments in total, each with its own theme and design. Most games in the CGC-based roguelike genre fail to convey the exciting and complex process of exploration, and often only give the player a choice of two or three paths. word-image-8876 Roguebook throws all that out the window and gives the player a blank canvas to explore. Each card has a path that leads to the chapter boss. There are several guaranteed encounters on this route, such as B. an epic battle and several chests where you can buy cards. But it’s off the beaten path that the game really shines. In a state almost resembling the fog of war, much of the map is empty, a plan yet to be revived. As you explore, defeat enemies and find treasure, you’ll be rewarded with ink and pompoms. You can then use these items to unlock different paths. It’s a level of satisfaction and discovery that you rarely see in games these days. Find the perfect inkwell to open a pocket to a large unexplored area, then scan it quickly. The feeling of satisfaction and excitement when high value items and challenging boss fights appear on screen is fantastic. It’s just a way to find items and spot enemies; once you delve into the intricacies of the places you can find while exploring, the game grabs you like no other. The battles in Roguebook are very similar to those in Slay the Spire. This is a turn-based card game in which you use energy sources to play certain cards before your opponent has time to do the same. Roguebook, however, brings a new level of depth by combining it with a Darkest Dungeon-like team setting where you can send two heroes into battle. The hero in front takes the most damage, while the hero in the back works to destroy the enemies. You will change jobs often. Some cards are cheaper when played from certain locations, and others have more powerful effects when combined with cards from other heroes. It’s a system that is almost instantly recognizable, but manages to stay fresh and engaging for 30 hours. word-image-8877 Each character begins the game with a prepared deck of cards. Soroko, a strong tank-like character, specializes in providing quality blocks and support, while Seifer – who has quickly become my favorite Roguelike character – combines the ability to heal himself and increase his damage based on the damage he takes. Each character is completely unique, but they are not limited by the simple archetypes they start with. The different options for each character seem endless. Add to that the different ways to combine the different builds of other allied heroes, and there are 100 different ways to play this game. Some generic types and styles are certainly more viable than others, but given the roguelike formula, you’ll rarely find the perfect set of cards and combos to easily win boss fights. The excitement of a new race, the possibility of a new rise – all of these keep you going and keep you coming back. And that’s just as well, because there’s a wide variety of enemies to choose from, each with their own mechanics, buffs and debuffs. word-image-8878 If the number of cards offered is not enough for you, most of them can be customized by inserting gems, special items that you can find and buy while exploring each site. These gems change the game by completely changing the value of the cards in an instant. In one of my better projects, I built a summoner for Seifer that summons special allied cards that act as pets. I put gems in a summon spell to keep the cost down, and put gems in another card so that it comes to the top of my deck when I’ve used it. I summoned an ally who dealt damage during the fight and healed me at the end, then used another card to double his damage. This is a combination that uses two cards on the same character. This level of customization extends throughout the game, promising endless hours of theoretical work for those who want to create fun and quirky decks. In addition, heirlooms offer another way to add a personal touch to your party. Some relics only give buffs to one hero, while others give bonuses to the entire group. Learn to adapt to the cards and relics you find and combine their effects to defeat a host of enemies. The beginning of the game will be difficult, but once you get the hang of it, you will see new and exciting combinations every time. word-image-8879 Depending on your experience with the genre and your preference for CCGs, it’s likely that you can complete a short campaign of three maps in 15-20 hours, which would be disappointing if that was all the game had to offer. Roguelike elements in Roguebook are designed for progression and complexity. You earn book pages by defeating bosses and finding special items. These pages can be spent to obtain over 30 different bonuses and perks called ornaments, which are permanent bonuses that are retained with each new game. Once you beat the final boss, there’s no time to waste – you unlock the game’s difficulty level. After you defeat the final boss for the first time, you will unlock new challenges that will be given to you during subsequent rounds of the game, which you will have to face over and over again each time you successfully complete the game. Each time you start a new round, you can choose between three different levels of difficulty. Some make enemies stronger and others more dangerous. Whichever one you choose, they all offer bigger and better rewards the next time you play. word-image-8880 Roguebook has everything you need to set the genre on fire. A great visual feast, battles as deep and complex as a CCG, useful roguelike mechanics – it’s all there. If you’re a fan of the genre, this game will quickly become a GOTY contender.
